. >> reporter: four years ago she was swept up by the tide of enthusiasm around candidate barack obama. >> i was an obama-mamma. and i was proud to claim that. >> reporter: not so much now? >> not so much. i'm not as enthused. >> reporter: do you think romney could be that change? >> it could be a change. i just don't know if it will be for the better. >> i would say no, i'm not better off now than before. >> reporter: single dad omar lopez came to the u.s. from colombia 13 years ago. now a u.s. citizen, he owns a real estate business in las vegas, surviving one of the most depressed housing markets in the country. he supported president obama four years ago. >> we have to downsize. >> reporter: he too has grown disillusioned. what are governor romney's loopholes will romney close, what will he do about immigration? you're holding out making a decision? >> i'm still holding out, yes. >> reporter: that's why president obama was back in nevada today. both candidates are battling hard for this battleground state. on the ground to get out the vote, carpet bombing the airwaves with political ads.
of the most depressed housing markets in the country. he supported president obama four years ago. >> we have to downsize. >> reporter: he too has grown disillusioned. >> one of governor romney's strong suits to you is the business side of you and he knows how to make money and our country needs to start making money. >> reporter: still, mitt romney has yet to win this businessman over. lopez wants specifics, which tax loopholes romney close? what will he do about immigration? >> you're holding out making a decision? >> yes, i'm still holding out, yes. >> reporter: that's why president obama was back in nevada today. both candidates are battling hard for this battleground state. >> romney for president? >> reporter: carpet bombing the air waves with the politicalads. >> my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. >> it is not just generating more jobs, you know, i'm going to create 1 more million jobs, tell me how, where. >> today it would be obama. tomorrow it could be romney. i can'ts promise anything. >> reporter: they both hope that the debates will help them finally
to be worse off than me, why is president obama four years into his term, why is he out front? >> because people haven't been convinced that mitt romney is any better. in fact, when we take the uncommitted voters we were talking about, most of them say, the economy is not going to get better if barack obama is reelected only 14% thinks there will be an improvement in the economy if the president is reelected. only 28% think that things get better if mitt romney, he has not closed the sale things would be any different if he was president. stuart: i think your tracking poll is one of the most accurate out there. >> always great to be with you, stuart. stuart: 9:50 eastern, here is the gold report. 1,790 po 1,790.70. close to 1800 bucks. off $16. dow up, oil up, gold up. we're less than 15 minutes away from the latest read on the economy and that would be, and that comes before friday, and the big jobs report. we're going to cover all of it for you, 0 i believe, and i will give you my take on the latest bubble. it's not what you think. coming up next though, a fortune, and misfortune, and r
, the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> the road to the white house runs through ohio, that's why the candidates have made more than 30 visits here already. the fact is that in this huge country, the election will be decided in just a few places like this. this is the most expensive presidential race ever. the two parties have already spent more than $1 billion in all, much of it focused on just eight of america's 50 states. over a third of the money has been spent on political adverts aimed at swaying undecided voters, roughly a million people, around 3% of those who plan to vote. >> maybe instead of attacking others on taxes, romney should come clean on his. >> trying to reach these vital voters, the two campaigns have spent $116 million on tv ads in ohio alone, most attacking their opponent. >> fewer americans are working today than when president obama took office. >> but if the air war is important, the ground war could be important. an emotional opening of the latest obama campaign field
'donnell is my guest and prepared john mccain for hess debate with president obama four years ago and welcome to the show, good to have you here. [applause] >> what would you say mitt romney has to do more than anything else in order to go into that debate and come out the winner? >> at the top of the list has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he's got to be able to litigate the case, make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. because folks believe the economy's bad right now, but what they don't actually believe is that it's the president's fault. he is got to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him, that the president is the one to blame for the economy that we've got right now. >> mike: there's a little bit of delicacy going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he's showing disrespect to the president. if he doesn't go after him like you've said he'll look deferen
. national numbers show obama leadingy two to four points. some polls have it it a little bit more. it's in the swing states particularly critical ohio where the obama lead appears to be four- to eight-points, something in that range. there are two possible regulations. one is state-specific factors that are affecting voters in those states. for example, in virginia and ohio, a better-than-average national economy. but the other conclusion it seems to me that you have to arrive at is campaigns matter. the obama folks are running a good campaign with good ads, good messaging in these swing states. >> woodruff: that's where they're putting all these efforts. >> they're running more ads. they ran more ads in the spring. they had more money to run ads in the summer. that was a time when they were really attacking governor romney trying to undermine his credentials on the economy. the romney campaign for financial reasons and also following their own strategy didn't respond as fully. didn't spend as much money on ads as the obama group did. this is a good bet that the obama campaign is thin
president obama has had four mock debates with senator john kerry who is of course no stranger to presidential debates. he also i can tell you had one more practice session last night after president obama had a campaign event in las vegas. now, as you pointed out, both sides are really trying to tamper down expectations. lavishing praise on the other candidate. that is because there's so much at stake in these debates really for most candidates. mitt romney tried to turn his campaign around, but president obama trying to hold on to the narrow lead you mentioned in your introduction. really trying to tamp down expectations. should also point out that president obama holding his debate camp right here in nevada which is a key swing state. one of the states he's hoping to win in november. he has a small lead in this state according to the abc wall street journal poll. he's trying to garner excitement by holding his debate camp here. he had a campaign event last night in las vegas. campaign officials tell me we shouldn't be surprised to see him shake a few hands over the next few
and capable. you're right. look, barack obama hasn't debated in four years. mitt romney has had a lot of debates in that time, but i do think it's worth noting, andrea, that all of mitt romney's debates have been against multiple people. there was never a time where he had a one on one debate against rick santorum or newt gingrich or rick perry. always debating four or five people who were really sort of aiming at him. he was the frontrunner throughout. barack obama had four debates against hillary clinton, one on one in the 2008 democratic primary, then three debates against john mccain. it's a different dynamic than to be the frontrunner where four or five people are aiming at you throughout a debate. >> here we are on the eve practically of the first debate and it's supposed to be an economic, domestic policy. >> right. >> and now foreign policy has reared its head. we have first of all mitt romney and "the wall street journal" an op-ed, saying that these developments are not as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk, yet a
in the polls. although they came out yesterday saying that obama was only up by four. and had -- the rates were still very much up for grabs. romney people have to hope for that to be true. >> bret: karl, what about that? you know, even the p.p.p., a democratic leaning organization, suggesting some place like ohio is still up for grab. they had it at four. we talked a lot about these polls. and the concern about them. but your take on the battleground states and the state polls in particular. >> yeah. i think we got to approach them with a lot of skepticism. in ohio last week, we had cbs/"new york times" poll saying ten points for obama. and a columbus dispatch poll saying nine points. frank newport the head of the gallup organization had a blog posting that was revealing. he said you have to subject the state polls to the judgment of experience. he said for example, take ohio. the president won there by less than five points last time around. this time around, the poll that said he is winning by ten, does it make sense he would do twice as well, the margin is twice as big this time around than
week in 22 states. four states moved toward president obama and changed status. iowa, ohio, nevada, all battleground states moved from tossup to lean obama. montana moved from romney to lean romney. there were 11 other states then moved toward obama but had no change in status. there were five states that moved toward governor romney. but again had no change in status. >> joe, of those, what is most important? >> i mean the biggest thing is that shift in nevada and ohio. those two in particular. ohio, obviously, a big move. moving it to lean obama, it puts for the first time, i think since we started back in april, it puts obama with over the 270 electoral votes. we had that back then. it's coming clear today. that makes states like colorado even more important. and ohio still, it's got -- that is a problem for romney that is now starting to show in the polls. although they came out yesterday saying that obama was only up by four. and had -- the rates were still very much up for grabs. romney people have to hope for that to be true. >> bret: karl, what about that? you know, even the p.p
the 2008 democratic convention. same state that president obama went on to win four years ago. it's going to be the first time that these two are going to share the same stage, and they're going to tackle domestic policy. that's going to happen for 90 minutes. of course, the stakes very high. especially for romney now. he is trailing in key states that could decide this election. cnn's candy crowley is saying that they're great expectations, even while both sides are trying to lower them. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of this campaign, and i think you're going to see those numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> reporter: note to governor christie. no, no, no, no. sop for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other die guy. like this. >> president obama is a very -- he is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. he is an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartis
missing opinions. he talks about america and another four years with obama. we look at how it is run the 2012 campaign how it is conducting foreign policy how it paralyzed economic growth and solutions being offered by the romney, ryan ticket and do they have the country's answers? because the donald has been less than silent on the abysmal obama record he like so many on the right have been subjected to ridicule by the president and his team out of chicago. >> can the president do more to show leadership on being transparent with regard to documents, records, his own background that's another underlying theme the campaigns are going at. >> are you talking about donald trump? >> i know he has been taking flack lately but no one is happier no one is prouder to put this birth certificate record to rest than the doll nald. >> looking to continue to bring up is college records. >> the donald trump question which i think he is the one who brings it up the most. >> last year at this time on this very weak end we finally delivered justice to one of the world's most notorious individuals. (a
that automatically? this time around it's more dangerous, isn't it? for president obama to blame a guy four years ago. >> yeah, because people are going to say, what did you do lately? you've had four years to fix the economy and look at the economic malaise we're still in. look at the jobs reports. last month, adding 96,000 jobs. not even enough to keep pace with population growth. chris: we put the first debate to the matthews meter. 12 of our regulars, including john, kelly and howard is mitt romney more likely to break through wednesday night on style points or on substantive arguments? nine say substance. three say style. you voted with the majority. howard, -- >> well, he's got to do it. again, deftly with humor. but he's got to brace the president. he's got to say, look, you're responsible. you're the economic commander in chief. there has not been nearly enough progress and not what you promised. here are five promises you made. you haven't met any of them. why do you deserve another four years, sir, if you haven't done that? that's the case he's got to make in the first debate. chris: well d
this is the latest from we it real clear politics and their number shows president obama with a four point lead over romney at this point. so get ready for the debate in you could watch it right here of the highlights on kron 4 and we're also will bring the entire debate on our, has won 93 channel and digita one south 4.2. >> voter registration from in florida. the state's republican party hired strategic ally consulting is a third-party burned to hit the street and register new voters. there is a problem the firm is now under investigation for using some questionable voter registration forms. the thousands of packages that went out will be checked. to make sure they are correct. to voters of pigeon point are being searched for the fishermen fell overboard there were four people on the boat that capsized and there is after it was slammed by a 15 ft. high waves. helicopters were using night-vision technology and searching the water on the coastline because of two of the voters made it back to shore they have life jackets on but the other two have not been found all four are from symphysis go. >> we s
really want him to count obama over this attack in libya, in benghazi, four americans, including the ambassador, died. his chief advisor is say it is still all about the economy. they are concerned, but not that concerned, as opposed to jobs or something like that. every day he is talking about foreign affairs is a day they are not talking about the economy. there is a real divide about what romney should do. >> we should point out the economy will be the topic at this debate, at least it will be domestic policy, for the most part. do we expect -- to mention romney might come out with more specifics. he spent four minutes on his specific plans for the economy during his speech. what do we expect this time around? >> we expect him to lay out more detail in this format, although whether it allows itself to an in-depth policy discussion is another matter. he is under a lot of pressure, especially under -- from conservative pundits, to put more meat on the bone and say what he would do differently on issues ranging from the economy to foreign affairs to everything else did you presid
real trouble so i'm afraid i have to go negative. (laughter) almighty father, almost four years ago president obama promised hope and change, but a lord and creator of the universe was this the change you wanted. the democrats left you off their convention platform and they want to force your servants to provide birth control to ther who of babylon. (laughter) obama punishes the job creators. just imagine how he'll treat the job creators. it's time to send obama a message-- maybe a river of blood or locusts, or losing ohio. (laughter) because barack obama isn't just wrong for the nation, he's wrong for creation. so, god, remember. on november 6-- a day which you are already in and will always be in for a time of eternity-- vote mitt romney. but bring photo i.d. because they're really cracking down. i'm stephen colbert and i pray this message. we'll be right back.

obama's next four years would be different than the first term. >> what is different between a second term obama than a first term. >> you are right. we have come a long way since we were losing jobs in 2008. we are net positive in terms of jobs created. but the hole was huge and we had to not only fill that hole but create an economy in which the middle class had a chance. we won't get there by going back to the same policies we had before. >> how are we going to get there? >> by responsibly dealing with these deficits and leaving money to invest. education, research and development. >> those aren't specific proposals. i'm asking -- >> 100,000 new math and science teachers. we need that. >> that's a goal, right? >> educating training 2 million new workers in our community colleges in conjunction with business to fill jobs that are open right now. boosting american manufacturing by ending the tax break that sends jobs overseas and giving tax incentives to companies that start manufacturing businesses here. these are specific tangible proposals and i believe they will pass because i be
at that point. four years coming in off what obama inherited is a different situation. >> you know, one thing i would say is that the presidential level and at the gubernatorial level and the senatorial level, people are paying a lot more attention. there's a lot more money involved, seeing the ads, following the debates. when you get further -- at that level i would say the campaigns do matter. romney coming out and making his comments about the 47%, that had an impact. >> huge. >> it had a huge impact. i would say the obama campaign has been very skilled in the way that they framed romney early and also in framing this election in general as not just about the economy, but about the future of the middle class. i would argue as you get further down the ballot, campaigns matter less and less. you are more subject to the national wins because voters just aren't paying as much attention. >> and the amount of -- >> to the campaign you're running. >> the amount of money can sway the race more easily? >> that's exactly right. and as an example i would -- in 2010, republican wave across the country.
why the next four years under president obama would be disasterrous. shouldn't focus on the last four years. focus on next four years and what four more years of obama policy would look like and lay out romney alternative. and i think he needs to go right at obama. my main advice would be ignore the moderator. sort of like juan does with you. when one argues with me and ignores all your questions around all that. he has to take do not get -- do not answer jim lehrer. go after president obama and speak to him in the second person and say you have failed unfortunately and here is what we can do differently and make it a sharp contrast. >> chris: interestingly enough, liz, when i talked to congressman ryan about the fact that romney needs a clear victory because of the state of the polls he pushed back against that. does he need a clear victory? >> he does. i think there is universal consensus that he has to do something to shake up the trajectory of the race and a safe performance probably isn't going to be enough at this point. having said that i think it might not be that hard for rom
and that means offering his own way ahead and, really explaining why the next four years under president obama will be disastrous, shouldn't focus on the last four years, focus on the next four years and clear choice, and really lay out what four more years of obama policies, in terms of debt and, no economic growth and in terms of a failed foreign policy, would look like, and lay out the romney alternative, and, i think he needs to go right at obama. my advice, ignore jim lehr, and, like i do with juan williams... ignore the question and, do not answer jim lehr, speak to obama in the second person, you have failed and here's what we can do differently, to make it a sharp contrast. >> chris: interestingly enough, liz, when i talked to congressman ryan, about the fact that romney needs a clear victory, because of the state of the polls, he pushed back, very much against that. does he need a clear victory? >> yes. he does, i mean, i think there is universal consensus he has to shake up the trajectory of his race and a safe performance will not probably be enough at this point. having said that,
: to the obama have presidential stature? >> he is the president. lou: that is presidential. i agree that he will be. the last four years he has been our president. lou: talking about governor romney. >> here is what i'm looking at for wednesday. that one of the first times president obama has been pushed the last four years. seven the white house have not served there. never tell the president reagan did not want to year. romney will respect the office of the presidency, but pushing very hard on the president's record. obama has a reputation. lou: i hear you all saying, the six together three of using to be agreeing this is a first impression. sipping a coke at the fountain stand in the local drugstore. and there will be no opportunity for substance, no opportunity for conflict in the debate, substance of any kind. i say to you, there ain't going to be a show. >> there will be lots of substance. the sliver of voters are undecided, one thing we know about them is that they pay no attention to current events. they do have an influence for first impressions. image is very important. if they're

continuity wising here's the problem we are going to have four years or if we want more than a billion dollars to answer it. that culture and the institution building that is taking place around the obama campaign helps give the democrats a major advantage and in the 08 campaign, as i write about in the book come this is an exceptional experience, it is partly because of the long prairie. he is in the stuff that so many of the people on the campaign came into contact with pretty sophisticated tools and in politics, and a lot of those states who are a field director and using the slowly advanced data in 2008 went out and went to state parties or labor unions or institutions on the left and there's a sort of pollination that is taking place that i think a little more active on the democratic side right now than on the republican side. .. and the ore opponents by using data. but there are scrambling to sort of build anything approaching the scaling of the obama campaign and anything approaching l am ambition of the obama campaign. types you can solve in six months are going to b

an asterisk is that in four years, no new gun control laws have been enacted. in fact, under obama's watch, concealed weapons are now allowed on amtrak trains and in national parks. >> he's continued to pay lip service to those things. but he hasn't shown real leadership in pursuing those changes. >> reporter: yes, background checks have gotten more thorough under obama. where people legally buying guns in gun shops. but the big problem remains gun shows and the internet. specifically, unlicensed dealers selling firearms to buyers with no background check needed. president obama has supported closing the gun show loophole in the past. but the white house says his focus now is on existing laws. governor romney says no to any further regulation of gun shows. >> there's no particular change in law that's going to keep people who are intent on doing harm from doing harm. >> the majority of gun owners would agree that we should do everything possible to prevent criminals and fugitives from purchasing weapons. >> reporter: so while president obama says he wants tougher gun laws, little was done
with the obama campaign, since they have had four years ago time to study and now they have for years later, is there any innovative technique they're using now, any more that you can't -- >> guest: the programs are really the thing and they have been used in small narrow ways by some institutions, the afl-cio, emily's list over the years in certain states in the obama campaign has this year is a major advance part of the way the people have tested messages mr. quaid is you have a poll that asks somebody who they support and then it tells them a bunch of information and asks them again who do you support and you see if anybody moves or you ask them directly. if i told you that mitt romney had not paid taxes for x number of years would make you less likely to vote for him and some percentage of people either move when they hear of the new information or the tell you they wouldn't move. people telling you that they wouldn't move is a pretty sort of conjecture will thing. i wouldn't trust anybody that told you what they would do under a hypothetical scenario learned some information. they may
